The Day the Earth Cried

I think we will always remember December 14th, 2012 as the day the Earth cried.

After talking to many people that I know over the last few days, I have come to the understanding that we, as a human race, are not only violent, but have a difficult time controlling ourselves.

I am tired of hearing about these vicious people who get their hands on a weapon of any kind, be it gun, knife or bomb, and seek out to destroy people they often times do not even know.

I am tired of a culture where guns are a part of our life like the television and the internet. We are desensitized to this news broadcast of a mass shooting. We talk about it for a week after it happens, and then we move on.

I am tired of the drug trafficking which breeds the ownership of guns in fear that your dope will be stolen, or that a deal could go bad and you have to shoot your buyer to keep yourself alive, so that you can go on and sell more drugs.

I am tired of men who use guns for intimidation so that they can rape a woman.

I am tired of unstable people who get access to a gun either by lying about their mental status, a lazy gun store owner who would rather make money than do a background check, or people who notice how insane someone is and they do not speak up about it.

I am tired of people who keep a gun in the same home where their children live, and the gun that was intended for protection ends up being the gun their child finds and accidentally shoots themselves with it.

I am tired of people who keep multiple guns in their homes, including assault weapons and are surprised when a deranged individual finds them and kills twenty children with it.

Most of all, I am tired of an amendment which defends that which kills tens of thousands of people every year.

How many more people need to die before America wakes up, and realize that our society must change, or guns will continue to take over our lives.
